Just resolved an issue with our password reset. If you had troubles logging in after a password reset it's likely that your new password wasn't complex enough. The password reset page wasn't displaying validation messages when a new password didn't meet the requirements. This has been resolved at as of 1/10/2021 6:30PM EST.
There have also been a couple instances where a fellow user might accidently selected the wrong locomotive during a report. For example; it's a locomotive on the east coast only but was reported on the west coast. This could happen if the person was scrolling the locomotive selection screen and accidently tapped the wrong locomotive during a scroll. For such a unique situation; we've added geo-fencing for handful of unique locomotives.
Added - BNSF 3027 - BN Paint
Our moderators now have the ability to update the leader status on a report. Previously if a user made a mistake selecting the leader we would have to take it down. Now our team can fix the mistake so the report can stay viewable.
